Mule Deer Rear

While scanning through some of my photos from a June trip out West, I spotted this image of a mule deer's backside. While its chances of ever appearing on the cover of National Geographic are nil, there was something that struck me about this shot.

Like someone spotting the image of a saint in a piece of toasted sourdough bread, I thought I recognized something familiar...

Perhaps you'll be a better judge. Does the face you see in this mule deer's posterior end remind you more....

... of a long-nosed monkey?

Or of Squidward, a character from the cartoon Spongebob Squarepants?

I see Gossamer from Looney Tunes. I'm also getting a little Wilford Brimley.
